Dear Dr. Brown,

I returned to work today and felt pretty good. My 6th graders were thrilled to have me back. I used to feel the pain of that small hernia pushing down under after wearing jeans all day; it felt great to not experience that pain now. I didn’t realize the discomfort and pain I had been tolerating all these years. I couldn’t have had a better hernia repair.

Thank you for being available and compassionate during every step of my recovery process. I am grateful everyday as I’m now able to be fully present for my kids at home and at work without the hernia pain being in the background.
